Women’s walk out, Arlington County edition

Comment on my post The Enthusiasm Gap:

The DNC not only took advantage of but walked all over women. The DNC is not even willing to come out in support of women’s rights issues. Unfortunately, the national women’s groups who generally support the party are unwilling to call it on its behavior. You are right, women – with their pocketbooks – are just walking away.

Ron Carlee, Arlington’s recently retired County Manager, said to me that the County’s Commission on the Status of Women was no longer necessary and that it is hard to dissolve “groups like that.” The County’s lack of support for the Women’s Commission has been increasingly obvious. As the economy worsens, the push to marginalize women, women’s rights, and women’s issues increases. As women disengage, we do so at our own peril.
